Welcome to the 2018 Puma Blue Chip Showcase Men’s Event. We had a record number of college coaches attend in 2017. Over 250 college coaches came last year and we expect this number to be even higher in 2018.
The Blue Chip Showcase has been in existence for 25 years and has attracted over 500 College Coaches (between the Men's and Women's events) to view players from around the country and Canada. It is the Premier College recruiting Showcase in the Midwest and one of the top in the country.
